A Valentines Verve Project Parade
My honey doesnt really eat alot of sweets. Or drink any coffee. But he does drink tea nearly everyday. So when this month's Verve Project Parade theme was Tags, Tins & Treats, I decided to make my own tea holder.
I took measurements for the teabag to make a base. Then stamped two panels for the walls of the holder. I used Spellbinder's label 9 to make the opening. Labels 9 seemed mimic an actual tea box opening perfectly.
I tried to make it not too girly. But really it only meant going with a blue theme rather than pink. He'll probably take off the bow before it goes to work with him, but I likes it.
Stamps: Verve Bountiful Backgrounds, Sweet Valentine
Ink: Memento tuxedo black, summer sky, spica glitter pens
Paper: PTI spring rain & tuxedo black, MM wedding pack
